Relentless Knitting Podcast

Welcome to the Relentless Knitting Podcast! We’re so happy you've found us. We are two science teachers who knit based out of the beautiful Okanagan valley in British Columbia Canada. The goal of this podcast is to share our love of the fibre arts and foster community. Our focus will be knitting with flares of other hobbies and interests. We are both recent first time moms and we’ll be sharing some of our adventures in mommyhood. We own Relentless Knitting Company and are contracted by our local yarn store to teach knitting classes. Find us on facebook, twitter and the web at www.relentlessknitting.com and join our group on Ravelry - Relentless Knitting Company.
